Not my first wine tour - but the first time the tour guide was a certified enologist and it was absolutely fantastic! We visited two wineries (one in Côtes du Rhône and the other one in Châteauneuf-du-Pape), plus had a couple of stops in the vineyards along the way - and our focus was on how wine production works in this region, from how to grow and prune the vines and distinguish between Grenache and Syrah by looking at the leaves to how to set up and manage a whole winery. Obviously had great wine tasting sessions as well - besides the two wineries we also had a stop at a wine shop in Gigondas where we tasted more wine. Huge thanks to Julien for this trip - learned a lot and enjoyed it immensely.
Our experience on this tour was fantastic. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the local wine appellations and towns and he went out of his way to make tour unforgettable. The wineries visited were smaller and family owned with exceptional wines rather than the larger tourist traps. We were able to sample a good cross section of the Southern Rhône in half a day.
It was a great trip! Nicolas - our guide has done a really great job! He is very nice, funny and has a big knowledge about the Lavendel, Wine and a great knowledge of the area. We had also the Lavendeltour (half a day to Sault etc.) with him. I would definitely recommend my friends to book the tours with Nicolas. Thank you again Nicolas - it was a pleasure! :)
Nicolas was the best guide. Incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Was an amazing tour for an English only speaking couple. We learned way more than we ever expected about wine and the entire process from soil to sip. We also learned about the climate of the area and history. Would’ve taken many more trips with Nicolas!
Great programme. Our guide Thierry has thorough knowledge about wine and history, entertained us till the end. Really enjoyed the afternoon.
